Magnetometer

Magnetometers are devices used to measure the magnetic field. In some cases, only the field strength or a subset of its components is measured.

This type of equipment is widely used to measure the terrestrial magnetic field and, in geophysical surveys, to detect magnetic anomalies of geological or anthropogenic origin.
